Upcoming book: ‘Arabi-Englisi’
Everyone! I am pleased to announce that I will be releasing my book, Arabi-Englisi, this April 2017!
My book aims to combat misconceptions and stereotypes between Arabs and the West – I made this official announcement during the Emirates Airlines Literature Festival in 2016 and I am very grateful for the invitation and for giving me the platform to express my excitement in publishing a book.
It chronicles my time in the UK and seeks to explain what it means to live as an immigrant in a major Western capital to an Arab audience.
I do owe my experience in London quite a bit, and I say that with a lot of gratitude and a lot of thanks. London has opened its arms to me and changed the way I look at life and the way I live my life.
The book is a humble attempt to try and say things the way they are. One of the definitions of experience is an accumulations of mistakes and this is a book about mistakes. Everybody makes mistakes and we can relate to each other’s as well.
